Anti-gay marriage groups win Taiwan referendum battle

Anti-gay marriage groups win Taiwan referendum battleVoters in Taiwan backed anti-gay marriage referendums Saturday in what LGBT activists said was a major blow to the island’s reputation as a rights trailblazer. The result came at the end of a dramatic evening which saw Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen resign as leader of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) after it suffered major defeats in key mid-term polls, a significant blow to her prospects for re-election in 2020. As well as voting for seats from village to city level, there were 10 referendums on the ballot, including pro- and anti-gay marriage proposals.
